Child having fever, cough, runny nose. Gets better when given Ibuprofen. Fever returns after 4 hours. Solution?

My daughter is almost 3yrs old. She has a temp of 103.3. She first had a temp of 102.6 on wed afternoon. She has a cough and a runny nose which is clear. She has coughed so much at times that she made herself vomit . She is drinking fluids ok and using the bathroom normally. Her fever has dropped when given ibuprofen and she feels better and wants to move around and play. But after about 4 hrs her fever spikes right back up. She has drainage in her eyes. Her eyes look sick and her cheeks are flushed.
